I think you forgot the skill part, and while Bouchard doesn't have a great year, skillwise he's way ahead of Higgins, who's not having a great year either...

And while Koivu >>> Bouchard, Gaborik >>>>>>>>>>>>>> Higgins...
Gaborik is not better than anybody, he's probably OUT FOR THE YEAR!!!

Marian Gaborik may undergo season-ending surgery to fix his hip.

Apparently there a 'deficiency' in Gaborik's left hip that is causing all the groin problems for the unrestricted free agent to be. This is terrible news for the Wild who were hoping to trade the star before he he could become an UFA and get something in return. Should Gaborik undergo the surgery, he could return right at the end of the regular season. "The question is, do we try to move forward by him still skating so we can try to get him back now and manage it, or do we get [surgery] done right away so he can try to come back by the end of the season?" assistant GM Tom Lynn said. "That's what we're trying to figure out in the next day or two. We're examining all our options."

Higgins numbers are as good as Bouchard's. Offense is even but Higgins is the much better all around player. Go check the numbers, Higgins has more goals, Bouchard more assists with Bouchard getting more 1st line and PP time. I'd never make that trade 1 for 1.
